The main function of climbing ropes are to break the falls of climbers while making a small impact of force. It is important that ropes for climbing are dynamic, so they are able to stretch upon impact to avoid a sudden breakage.

Other factors that differ between climbing ropes are weight, static elongation, dynamic elongation, and sheath. Read more about rope reviews, and general information about climbing ropes.
